How to get more than 20 decimal places?

    I need more that 20 decimal places. I think the Google calculator fails after about 15 places. Any suggestions?

    Go to Wolfram Alpha http://www.wolframalpha.com Say you want the value of 3/7 to 100 digits. Type in:

    N[3/7,100]

    or pi to 1000 digits:

    N[pi,1000]

    You get the idea.
